The vibe was 1920's burlesque and it didn't disappoint, the decor was beautiful - the cocktails were flowing (which we were greeted with as soon as we walked through the door ;) ), the canapes were canape-ing (which I didn't get to try!) and of course, the bloggers were snapping!
This guy above was pretty much the host of the show for the night with an occasional sing-song in which he would change the lyrics so they were a bit naughty. He really was hilarious and made the night just that little bit more great! After a few drinks and greetings, the show kicked off with a few acts including some burlesque, a belly dancer and even a fire eater - so of course, this was an awesome start to everything. As a complete burlesque virgin I had the BEST time!
After the acts, the night moved on to what we were really there for (other than to get pissed of course...) - AX Paris's A/W. The catwalk was modeled by some of our very own favourite bloggers including one of my top 3, the lovely Amy from Amy Valentine who I luckily got to hang out with. Check me out, shy old me hanging out with some cool kids! Anyway, the collection was beautiful, particularly for the party season - you can expect a ton of sparkles ready for December in the form of beautiful dresses, and the colours were lovely, there were some mermaid shades in there aswell as your typical can't-live-without LBD's. One word for the AX Paris this season? Ultra-glam. Not only that, the amazing Jade Thompson (winner of BINTM!) rocked up to present the new TV ads!
After seeing all the beautiful clothes that will obviously be finding a spot in my wardrobe this season, more acts followed to complete the night (and more cocktails...) in the form of even more nakedness!
And of course, I cannot forget one major part of the night for a foodie like me, the cookies... Oh. My. God. They were so delicious. If you want a chance to try one, you may be very lucky as E-tail PR are doing a goodie bag giveaway from the night, and there was a cheeky one in mine, so head on over to their twitter @etailpr or find them on Facebook to try and bag yourself one!
And finally, I wanna give a massive shout-out to some of my new lovely blogger friends who made the final touches to a perfect night (Olivia, Courtney, Kavita, Amy, Rosie, Kayla and Kate) and to Laura, my uni friend and blogger friend for saving me since dimwit over here left her SD card at home...
